Sunny painted and then laboriously hand stitched details on this octopus for a Christmas gift exchange, which she didn’t even get to go to because she was in too much pain from having her wisdom teeth removed. Now she is feeling better and working hard at making little stuffed animals out of my scrap fabric. I figure she’ll work her way through my scrap bin in about a thousand years.
It’s been fun to share my studio with the girls. Sunny uses it to make all kinds of things. Basketball Girl uses it because the only TV in the house is there, and she does her nightly beauty regimen while watching TV on my couch. They are both good sports about putting up with the noise of my sewing machine while they try to do something else. Family togetherness means putting up with each other’s noisy appliances.
